On a sunny Thursday in Pomona, members of the Pomona Chamber of Commerce & City Council, employees from the Pomona Unified school district, and friends from the local Pomona community gathered at The Brick Market and Deli for an exciting day.
Our ribbon cutting ceremony kicked off around 11:30am on February 13, 2014. Entertainment was provided by the Pomona High School drum line and cheerleaders. Tables, chairs, and balloons were set up in the patio area and parking lot with a wide assortment of food samples. These included Stacy’s pita chips and house made hummus, as well as hearty chili, pasta salad, coleslaw and a platter of Boar’s Head meats & cheeses. Samples of baked goods were also brought out and went fairly quickly.
Attendees took advantage of the special discounts as they tried sandwiches and salads from the menu. They mingled and made new friends as they enjoyed their food, while others took some time to browse our market area.
Finally it was time for the ribbon cutting. Kind, supportive words were shared from council members as they welcomed the Brick Market and Deli to the Chamber of Commerce. The ribbon was cut and the festivities continued.
Unfortunately, the heat cut the ceremony shorter than expected. By about 1pm, scraps of samples were left and, with the exception of a few, most of our guests resumed their work day.
We showered with praise for our hard work on opening the place, and providing a fresh, new alternative to the Pomona community. We sincerely appreciate your support and would like to thank everyone who made our ribbon cutting ceremony a success.
